Another Terrible Night at Club Acid
The proprieters of Acid need to change their evil ways and let Acid be the gay club that it can be. They need to realize that no matter how much they try to hide it, Acid is a gay club and would not survive without its clientele, which is about 80 percent gay men and 10 percent lesbians.
The main problem is the hideous bouncers. They spend all their time roaming the dance floor, shoving people and acting important. If a gay men who can dance gets up on the platform, he will be pulled down in favor of some ugly straight girl who will stand up there and fool with her cell phone. (That is, unless the gay guy bribes the bouncers, of course).
Gay men can't dance together without being shoved apart.
You can't stand near the bathrooms without being told to move.
Straight couples, no matter how trashy, get treated like royalty by the staff. They think that by having a few straight people in the club, no one will think it's a gay club. It's almost like the proprieters are trying to protect their reputations.
Worst of all, gay people are willing to take it. They rather have a gay club where they get treated like slime than no gay club at all. Which, I suppose, is understandable. Nevertheless, it's still tragic.
Acid gets away with being terrible because there's nowhere else for gay people to go. I'd love to see a new club open that lets gay people be gay so no one goes to Acid anymore.
And, besides the gay stuff, the drinks aren't good. It's not worth paying 30,000 LL for an open bar when you have to wait 20 minutes for a watery drink.
X-OM is a much friendlier environment for gay people. If only it were big enough for the weekends...
